Okuma rod question
« on: November 27, 2021, 04:32:08 PM »
So just a quick question. I lost the upper section to my guide select pro today ( thanks kids). Anyone know if I can order just the upper section for the rod or do I need to buy a whole new rod? Thanks

The only place youíd be able to get one is from Okuma probably. It would probably be cheaper to just buy a new rod.

Yes you can order them from okuma, the top portions are pretty reasonable, I think shipping was more then the top half I ordered

Dang, wish I knew that before I turned the cork section into a tap handle....  Garage doors aren't kind to rods.

Got one the snapped off in the power window. Took it to Sportco and they helped me get another ordered. Both Okuma and Sportco :tup:

Snapped the tip off my Okuma Kokanee rod when I thought it would be fun to use light tackle for catch and release Chums. Hmmm. Anyway, I called Okuma customer service and for $28 they sent a new tip section. Great service!

Well called okuma and I was able to order a upper section for the rod for less than 30 buck including shipping. Not bad! Gonna have to teach my kids to be more careful next time.

Good news👍
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.
